BoxingScene.com's news editor Steve Kim recently reported that Tim Bradley, Brandon Rios and IBF super welterweight champion Cornelius "K9" Bundrage are in the running to be WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto's next opponent. Cotto is planning on returning to the ring in May or June.
Bundrage, who appeared in the second season of the Contender, told BoxingScene.com that he is very interested in adding Cotto's belt to his collection and sent us the following message:
"Yeah I will punish Cotto. He don't want this work. I will have the junior middleweight belt and will snatch the middleweight belt. This ain't Canelo, this Iron DogG K9!"
Bundrage is no stranger to negotiating with Cotto's team as he almost faced him in December 2012. He was a finalist to face the Puerto Rican superstar but Cotto opted to face Austin Trout who beat him via unanimous decision instead.
